Jackson Hole Intermediate Skiing

Jackson Hole's intermediate skiing is overshadowed by the resort's legendary steeps, but intermediate skiers have plenty to explore at Jackson Hole.

Jackson Hole Intermediate Skiing 660X260

Although intermediates would perhaps be ill-advised to try skiing from the top of the Tram, they can still access enough of Jackson Hole-around 40 percent-from other lifts to give a taste of big mountain skiing and, therefore, a true taste of Jackson, although a willingness to explore (sensibly) the mountain rather than simply following the trail map will be helpful.

Apres Vous Mountain provides much of the intermediate terrain; smooth groomers allow the skier to cruise through wide slopes. There are also opportunities for low-risk tree skiing and amazing views of the valley below.

From the Bridger gondola more blues are accessible. The longest runs at this level-Gros Ventre (Fat Stomach) and Sundance Gully-give 2,700 vertical feet (823 m) of descent. A total of 22 miles (35 km) of Jackson Hole is groomed; a grooming map explains the state of the trails each day, which is particularly relevant for skiers who are unable to cope with tough or deep conditions.

For stronger intermediates, there's also the northern side of Laramie Bowl, probably the toughest skiing that could fall into this category. Bear in mind when venturing onto back country terrain, that some guidance is useful-probably best attempted in the company of a ski instructor-to help avoid getting caught out on steep, moguled terrain.
